The Kiev 60. It was the camera that got me into medium format film photography, and for better or worse, the one that I love, and the one that frustrates me the most. A Soviet tank of a camera — the T-34 if you will — it’s not one that you want to lug up […]
I recently shot a roll of Cinestill 50D on a sunny, Saturday walk in Zurich. I chose to shoot Cinestill 50D because I had recently watched a review of it on the Analogue Wonderland Youtube channel. Having shot it before and not finding it particularly good, I wanted to shoot it again because the photos […]
We are the Brothers Wright, the photographers and creators behind CineStill. Ever since the beta tests of CineStill 800T processed in C-41 chemistry, and especially once we began designing simplified chemical processes, we have been asked many technical questions about motion picture processing and still photography. Over the years, we have done our best to […]
When I started shooting analog, I mostly shot on Polaroid film and basically still do so today. Compared to 35mm film, shooting Polaroids is very straightforward, as the cameras only offer less than basic adjustment options – there is a lighten/darken wheel and a manual focus and that’s it. But lately, I felt the urge […]
For a while now, my photography goal has been on capturing a more energetic, or emotionally resonating type of moment than my earlier style, which was a little more withdrawn, involving distant figures and light architecture. The shift to film allowed me to constantly concentrate on finding the next “worthy” scene to work, as opposed […]
In January 2006, after 5 or so years of film photography with a combination of cheaper cameras (e.g., a Minolta SRT-101, a Fed-3 and an old Mamiya 35mm), I bought a like-new Nikon FM3A for $429 USD on eBay. Since then it has shot hundreds (if not thousands) of rolls of film, and has accompanied […]
Whenever I go out shooting with film, which seems to be a lot these days, I take my trusty Nikon F2 and the 50mm F/1.4 AI-S. Can I just say that this camera is a bit of a beast?
Greetings from EMULSIVE HQ.
I first bought this film to try Cinestill out as a brand. I was really curious about the company because of the concept of using movie stock film to create still photographs.
Having read a selection of blog posts and reviews about the CineStill range of 120 and 135 films I was intrigued.
A huge welcome to Daphne Schnitzer, past 5 Frames With contributor here on EMULSIVE and pinhole aficionado.
Update 02: 2018-09-20
If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably wondered how many fresh film stocks are still in production and available for purchase today.
It seems that a few sneaky types have recently been spreading rumours about a new film from Cinestill on social media.
2017 has been a bumper year for film photography so far! This article provides a living record of all the new films announced in 2017.
Probably known as much for his Analog Monthly blog posts, as he is for his silly Twitter name (what is a faulty flip flap, anyway?), I’m pleased to be able to finish of 2016’s EMULSIVE interviews with the one and
Here’s something a little different.
